Four of Digby Brown's new partners standing next to each other.

Digby Brown Solicitors has marked another year of growth by appointing four new Partners and a record number of solicitor promotions.

The new Partners include Sarah Douglas, Diane Cooper and Kirsty O’Donnell in Glasgow with Sam Cowie in Inverness.

In addition, six Associates and 11 Senior Solicitors were promoted this month, recognising excellence at each of Digby Brown’s seven offices.

It is the highest number of promotions the firm has ever handed out in a single motion and it follows a year of post-COVID growth that saw the firm recover more than £150m in damages for clients.

Fraser Oliver, Chief Executive at Digby Brown, said: “I am truly delighted to welcome each Partner and congratulate our solicitors on their new roles.

“These appointments show the commitment Digby Brown has in its people and the future.

“We are one team that strives to help the public obtain access to justice, be the leading personal injury firm in Scotland and be an employer of choice.

“By investing in the development of our staff – while recognising the quality of their work, results and client service – it ensures Digby Brown continues to lead the field of Scottish personal injury litigation.”

Sarah is known for her excellence in employer liability cases while Kirsty has become a notable figure in the complex field of serious injury.
